Design parameter dependent force reduction,strength and response modification factorsfor the special steel moment-resisting frames
Cheol Kyu Kang and Byong Jeong Choi

    In current ductility-based earthquake-resistant design, the estimation of design forces continues to be carried out with the application of response modification factors on elastic design spectra. It is well-known that the response modification factor (R) takes into account the force reduction, strength, redundancy, and damping of structural systems. The key components of the response modification factor (R) are force reduction (R
